Live on Skysports 4: Sat 12.45: Inverness, much better away than at home, are 6/1 with Paddy Power to beat Rangers.
IF it hadn’t been for the weather maybe Inverness would have requested today’s clash with Rangers be switched to Glasgow.
That’s how good Terry Butcher’s men are away from home. Unbeaten in a year in the league – draws at Ibrox and Parkhead.
It’s a different story at the Caledonian Stadium where they have lost four times this term and you’ve got to fancy Rangers to make it a fifth. The Ibrox men will be upbeat after another decent Euro outing and are a best 4/7 with Ladbrokes to win and maintain their 100 per cent away record.
Kenny Miller – who insisted he was targeting 40 goals this season before reports he could quit the club next month – will be full of confidence after he ended his Champions League drought in Turkey. Miller is 7/2 at Betfred to score first while Steven Naismith, who missed a few chances against Bursaspor, is 6/1 with Coral.
ICT’s Adam Rooney, who netted a hat-trick against Hibs, is 8/1 with bet365 to score first and 12/5 at any time (same firm). Hills have priced up some match bets between Miller and Rooney. The Ibrox man is 1/2 to net before the ICT striker (6/4) and Miller is 1/3 to bag more than his rival (9/4). Rooney and Miller both to score pays 4/1 with Hills and neither to hit the target pays 17/10.
William Hill are also asking what will happen first out of the following:
A Miller goal is 11/10, Rooney strike 7/2, Miller subbed 7/1, Rooney subbed 8/1, Miller card 10/1, Rooney card 10/1 and final whistle 12/1.
Hearts will be on many coupons because it’s too early for Aberdeen’s new boss Craig Brown to have an effect. The Jambos have been pretty solid recently and I like them at 4/7 (totesport). Hearts have won their last four games 2-0 and a fifth pays 6/1 (Ladbrokes).
St Mirren have beenplaying slightly better than St Johnstone and I can’t see them lose in Paisley but it could end a draw (23/10, Betfred). It looks one for the unders and fewer than 2.5 goals pays 4/6 (Skybet).
